Yes, it's ground that's been treaded before. But One Direction is over talking about Zayn Malik leaving the group, and Harry Styles just mocked the solo singer over something he can't change — his tattoo.

While talking about their ink, Hazza joked that if he wasn't famous, he "probably would have gotten something like a yin yang" or "a Chinese symbol on my leg." And then he laughed hysterically with Louis Tomlinson!

So how is this throwing shade? The Bradford Bad Boy has a yin yang tattoo on his forearm.

However, hopefully he wasn't intentionally dissing Zayn! It seems like he only realized what he was saying when it was too late.

Even though Hazza caused quite a ruckus among Directioners when he kicked a cutout of his former bandmate off of the stage, there's no proof he did that on purpose either.

Do you think Harry was throwing shade at Zayn? Was it just an accident? Let us know in the comments!
